Technology has limitless applications around the home, and the constant emergence of new trends can be utterly overwhelming for anybody. Many people have already discovered the benefits of mobile using VoIP to improve their call quality and reduce their phone bills, but here are a few more business trends to be aware of:
1. Smart Thermostats
Nobody enjoys paying high electricity bills in the cold winter months or hot summer months, but smart thermostats can keep you and your family perfectly comfortable, while also dramatically reducing electricity usage. Smart thermostats are programmable to operate at a more efficient temperature when nobody is home, though they can begin warming or cooling the house when it knows you’re on your way home.
It can either do this with GPS location, or you can change the temperature yourself from your smartphone before you leave work. There is no use in running the air conditioner at full blast all day, when you can have a perfectly cool home just by letting it run for a few minutes before you arrive.
2. Smart Vacuums
Although it’s still beneficial to have a regular vacuum for deeper cleaning and unforeseen messes, smart vacuums can do most of the work for you on a regular basis. Smart vacuums have numerous sensors and GPS technology that help them navigate your floors and clean your carpets.
Many smart vacuums can even mop tile or hardwood floors, and you can schedule which days or times you would like it to do its job.
3. Smart Cooking Appliances
It’s easy to forget about food you were cooking or an oven you had preheated when you have so many other tasks to do on your plate. This is where smart cooking appliances can really shine. Smart ovens, crock pots, and even air fryers, can be programmed ahead of time to preheat, or you can start the process with a few taps on your smartphone.
You can also receive alerts when they are done preheating, so you can get a reminder to throw in the casserole while you’re rushing around working on other chores.
It’s easy to drown in household tasks and chores, but by leaning on these new forms of home technology, you can make your life much easier on a day-to-day basis. Although many of these new technologies are already impressive, it’s inevitable that they will continue to get better and better and change our lives altogether.
